so, sociology is not biology; and the mystery is about the y chrome that women lack.
whether or not this(y chrome) is a factor, or a similar factor found in nature, that precludes changes that are spontaneous like caterpillar to butterfly;
two x chromes do not show the observation of y unless the observation of y in man is what is not observed by two x chromes.
There are risks in the specialization of the Y chromosome, however. Besides its absence in females, lack of recombination for most of its physical territory except at its tips, and the strict pattern of paternal inheritance, the solitary cellular existence of the Y chromosome reduces the opportunity for DNA repair, which normally occurs while pairing during mitosis. This may explain the prevalence of multicopy DNA sequences on the Y, and why many of its genes have lost functionality. In fact, while genes predominately specific to male function tend to accumulate on the Y chromosome, other genes that have functional counterparts elsewhere will atrophy over evolutionary time, through the accumulation of uncorrected mutations. Thus the Y chromosome is slowing evolving toward a composition with fewer and fewer essential genes.
Wrong. For one redunancy does not cause the effects you are ascribing it.
And by the way countering fem-nazism with it's opposite is just SILLY at best.
Your statement is incorrect, and ignorant of evolution at best. First and foremost, the quantity of your genes does not direct your quality of product.
Thus, the argument that men are better than women due to an extra chromosome is debunked.
But it's debunked even if it was true, because the second x chromosome is not turned off. The X chromosome acts as a shield, or sex-linked dominance, over the second one, or sex-linked receive.
Thus, if anything, males are weaker as a result of the Y chromosome. This is why males usually get diseases like Hemophilia.
Before men get too impressed with themselves, lead author Jennifer Hughes offers some words of caution: Just because the Y chromosome, which determines gender, is evolving at a speedy rate it doesn't necessarily mean men themselves are more evolved.

Naw. Men are more eager to do evil for 2 reasons:
2. Cause we need to bring home the spoils of war to impress the women.
There is no "inactive" X in women. That's insane. Some chromosones are active on one X, and some on the other. There is no "inactive X."
The complete set of chromosomes in the cells of an organism is its karyotype. It is most often studied when the cell is at metaphase of mitosis and all the chromosomes are present as dyads.
The karyotype of the human female contains 23 pairs of homologous chromosomes:
* 22 pairs of autosomes
* 1 pair of X chromosomes
The karyotype of the human male contains:
* the same 22 pairs of autosomes
* one X chromosome
* one Y chromosome
(A gene on the Y chromosome designated SRY is the master switch for making a male.)
A.) Behind every strong man is a strong woman too. I can barely think of many leaders of the world who weren't married or with a particular woman.
B.) It is not an extra X chromosome. Let's go back to freshman year bio, shall we?
Were does one sex chromosome come from? Mommy. Where does the second sex chromosome come from? Daddy. Now unless Mommy and Daddy are clones of each other, brother sister, or twins, (and I'm not saying that it doesn't happen) then the female double X chromosomes are individual genetic traits from each parent.
Oh boy my dear child, you failed bio again.
My hair color? Co dominate. Brown from my mother, golden from my father's mother.
Now as to my sister? The fun begins. Because she's the exact same, only change the ratios. Her hair is very blond, but with the occasional brown stream. Probably 2/3. Here eyes are also different, and are blue with brown-gold streaks. Here height is the exact the in between size of my mother and father.
